Wrap-Up: Summer TBR Wipeout 2016

Summer TBR Wipeout Banner

Well, the summer is officially winding down and while I still have a holiday or two left to enjoy, the summer seems to be slipping through my fingers! I have also discovered a great deal about my reading habits while doing this challenge, so while I did not accomplish exactly what I set out to do, I have made a huge realization that will help me in the future!

What is this wonderful realization, you ask? Well, in a nutshell, I am an extremely fickle reader! I am constantly changing things up in my TBR. If I get a book that I am dying to read, I sometimes switch things around to accommodate even though I really don’t have time to do so. Also, I found a way to squeeze in some backlist titles into my reading schedule and this makes me very happy! I have been so focused on reading and reviewing all of those new releases that those books on my shelf were not getting the attention that they deserved. I am really hoping to continue to add backlist titles to my review schedule on a more regular basis.

I actually only read 6 of the original books that I had chosen! I had to set aside Siege and Storm and Burning Glass because they just weren’t doing anything for me. I got really bored with both of these books, actually. I was so disappointed because I was really anticipating them and thought they were going to be stellar reads! Maybe one day I will pick them up again and have different feelings, but for now I have other books to fill the void! As for Glass Sword, ACOMAF, and Six of Crows, I have them scheduled to read and review a bit later in the month, so fingers crossed that I get to these ones soon!

Most of the books that I did read were fantastic and I have written quite a few reviews in the past month. If you are interested in learning more about the titles that I read (or intended to read) this summer, you can find them all on my Goodreads shelf.

Thank you so much for those who participated and took part in this challenge! I am so happy to have knocked off a few of the books on my TBR and have been inspired by some of you who can read multitudes of books in a short period of time. Don’t forget to link up your posts in the linky and enter the giveaway as well!

    Wow! You got lots of reading done this summer!! I didn’t stick to my original list either. I read about half of them, and then added in some impulse reads. Thanks for hosting…I had lot of fun with this 🙂

    I have done the same thing some of the books which I read were different from what was there on my original list. But I am so happy to read more than I expected! I love your progress as well. I actually forgot about the giveaway until I read your last paragraph lol.

    I feel like the summer is totally over for me because there has been some bad weather here AND school is starting tomorrow… Anyway, it sounds like you got a lot of reading done! I always veer off schedule too haha. (It’s why I got lazy and stopped putting together an official tbr because most of the time, I’d change my mind and end up reading completely different books.)

    Good for you for reading all you did!!! It’s hard to stick to a list when you are a mood reader. I had the same problem a few times, though at times, I was glad to have an actual plan where I didn’t have to think about what to read next!
